Theater Program in Oxford, England


My name is Emmanuel West and I'm a rising Senior at Bowie State University and an aspiring Oscar and Tony award winning actor (manifestation). Some of my acting heroes include Josh Radnor, Viola Davis, Giancarlo Esposito, Sterling K Brown, David Tennant, Denzel Washington, and the late and great Chadwick Boseman. In a (insert date) interview with (insert media) Mr. Boseman spoke about how the opportunity to spend a summer studying theater in Oxford, England changed his life, perspective, and career. What made that program even more special was one of my favorite actors sponsored him and his classmates so they can attend that program. Through the gifting of an involved professor, Ms. Phylicia Rashad, Chadwick was able to take a step further in his career and dreams by participating in the Midsummer in Oxford Program at the British American Drama Academy . Years later, Chadwick was able to thank Denzel Washington personally at the Black Panther premier in New York for helping his dreams come true and his sponsorship.

I am fortunate enough to have been accepted in to the same program! Notable alumni for this program include, Chadwick Boseman and Orlando Bloom.

It is a dream of mine to attend this program too and I would love your assistance in helping me get there next summer! While I am working two jobs in between studying and doing gigs and shows, you can check out my recent work here (insert link), any assistance can help and is appreciated! 

You're financial support will not be in vain and will help me fuel a bright future in acting. Thank you in advance,

Love Emmanuel
